Dave Barry’s Year in Review

Go read it in the Washington Post!

Just to give you a taste, here’s the summary:

How weird a year was it? Here’s how weird:

  •  O.J. actually got convicted of something.
  •  Gasoline hit $4 a gallon — and those were the good times.
  •  On several occasions, “Saturday Night Live” was funny.
  •  There were a few days there in October when you could not completely rule out the possibility that the next Treasury secretary would be Joe the Plumber.
  •  Finally, and most weirdly, for the first time in history, the voters elected a president who — despite the skeptics who said such a thing would never happen in the United States — was neither a Bush nor a Clinton.
